  §  1.45   Pleadings; filing periods.

   Except as otherwise provided in this chapter, pleadings in Commission
   proceedings shall be filed in accordance with the provisions of this
   section. Pleadings associated with licenses, applications, waivers, and
   other documents in the Wireless Radio Services must be filed via the
   ULS, and persons other than applicants or licensees filing pleadings in
   ULS must provide an email address to receive electronic service. See
   § 1.47(d).

   (a) Petitions. Petitions to deny may be filed pursuant to § 1.939 of
   this part.

   (b) Oppositions. Oppositions to any motion, petition, or request may be
   filed within 10 days after the original pleading is filed.

   (c) Replies. The person who filed the original pleading may reply to
   oppositions within 5 days after the time for filing oppositions has
   expired. The reply shall be limited to matters raised in the
   oppositions, and the response to all such matters shall be set forth in
   a single pleading; separate replies to individual oppositions shall not
   be filed.

   (d) Requests for temporary relief; shorter filing periods. Oppositions
   to a request for stay of any order or to a request for other temporary
   relief shall be filed within 7 days after the request is filed. Replies
   to oppositions should not be filed and will not be considered. The
   provisions of § 1.4(h) shall not apply in computing the filing date for
   oppositions to a request for stay or for other temporary relief.

   (e) Ex parte disposition of certain pleadings. As a matter of
   discretion, the Commission may rule ex parte upon requests for
   continuances and extensions of time, requests for permission to file
   pleadings in excess of the length prescribed in this chapter, and
   requests for temporary relief, without waiting for the filing of
   oppositions or replies.

   Note: Where specific provisions contained in part 1 conflict with this
   section, those specific provisions are controlling. See, in particular,
   § § 1.294(c), 1.298(a), and 1.773.
